Stephen C. Hall Building

  • Date Building Named: 2010

Before 1980, the Steven C. Hall Building was known during WWII as the Ceramic Engineering Building and was noted on campus maps as a Naval Armory. It housed the Naval ROTC program, Georgia Tech Glee Club, GT Chorale and had a full destroyer bridge simulator in it. 

Today, the Stephen C. Hall Building houses the Writing and Communication programs at Georgia Tech as part of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts. The new home of Georgia Tech's Writing and Communication Program, which includes the Marion L. Brittain Post-doctoral Fellowship, contains two specially outfitted multimedia classrooms, a formal presentation space, a seminar room, a recording booth, multiple collaborative spaces, and a mother’s lounge. In addition, there is office space for sixteen Brittain Fellows and Writing and Communication Program interns and directors. The building also houses the newly restructured DevLab complete with six high-end computer workstations and a central collaborative space. Addtionally, the renovated patio facing Bobby Dodd Stadium will be used to host program events. 

Col. Hall believes, the new writing and communications program "...will take us much farther down the path of accomplishing our most basic Ivan Allen College goals: the creation of a highly charged intellectual community in which students, faculty, and staff come together to foster a culture of communication excellence.” Furthermore, he comments that  “the adventure continues... An adventure steeped in scholarship, lighted by a legacy, grounded in gratitude, and powered by a promise. That promise being that Pam and I will continue the journey, doing as much as we can, for as long as we can, as Tech and the Ivan Allen College grow into the years ahead.”
